Kobe already inspired many young athletes, who want to make it to professional sports. Several current NBA stars grew up idolizing him and try to follow his principles. The Lakers legend once famously mentioned that he was a proud ‘girl dad’ while talking to ESPN’s journalist Elle Duncan. Elle revealed the conversation and it quickly went viral on social media.
During an ESPN show, journalist Elle Duncan revealed her conversation with Kobe when she was 8-months pregnant. She revealed that Kobe was happy to know that she was having a girl, and he himself admitted that he would love to have five more girls if he could.
“He (Kobe Bryant) high-fived me ‘girls were the best,’” Elle Duncan on Kobe’s reaction when he learned she was 8-month pregnant.
“I asked him for advice on raising girls, seeing as though he quite famously had three at the time. And he said ‘Just be grateful that you’ve been given that gift because girls are amazing’. His third daughter, Bianca, was about a year and a half old at the time.
So, I asked if he wanted more children… I was like ‘four girls? Are you joking like what would you think? How would you feel?’ And without hesitation, he said, ‘I would have five more girls if I could. I’m a girl dad.’”
